Flaming Silver Japanese Pieris Growing and Maintenance Tips
Pieris grows best in constant moisture, (but not standing water), in a fertile soil with a low pH. Seed capsules should be removed to promote next year's flower. Young plants can benefit from protection (burlap wrap) against drying, winter winds and winter sun in an exposed location. Use in a mixed border or for foundation plantings.
